Weyburn's DeLaet retires from PGA Tour

“Every part of me always wanted to keep playing and keep doing what I’m doing,” DeLaet, 40, said in a story posted on the TSN website. “I love the game. I love the competition and everything, but every time I tried to ramp it up and get practising again, I would just go backwards.

“It just got to the point where it wasn’t worth it because it was affecting my life with my family and things I wanted to do around the house with my kids and all that kind of stuff. So, eventually, after multiple decisions and a lot of tears, Ruby (his wife) and I came to the realization that it was probably just time to move on.”

DeLaet attended Boise State University, where he was a four-time all-conference performer. He was a member of Canada’s amateur team through the 2006 season and won the Saskatchewan men’s amateur title in 2005 and ’06.

At his peak, he reached No. 26 in the world rankings. He and Mike Weir are the only Canadians to play on the International team in the Presidents Cup; DeLaet went 3-1-1 in 2013.
